Wolf pups

At Wolf Center, a newly opened wolf education and conservation facility in Doerveden, Germany, six tiny European gray wolf pups are receiving round-the-clock care from their keepers.

The pups, five males and one female, were born May 10 at a wildlife park in the region of Lower Saxony. They join four adult European gray wolves at Wolf Center (although the pups occupy a separate enclosure).

The European gray wolf is a subspecies of gray wolf, but differs in several ways from the gray wolves that live in North America. European wolves tend to have coarser fur with thicker manes, longer ears and more streamlined, narrow skulls than their North American counterparts.
